Global Leadership in the 21st Century

November 28, 2017
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Casa Italiana, Teatro, 1161 Amsterdam Ave., New York, NY 10027

Living in an evolving time, today's global leaders are challenged with difficult obstacles shaping societies and their environments. The Committee on Global Thought and the Tällberg Foundation are collaborating to discuss these issues and determine what kind of new leadership is needed. Major support for the Tällberg leadership initiatives, as well as other activities, is provided by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

This World Leaders Forum will feature a conversation about the demands facing great leaders among the 2017 Tällberg Global Leaders, and a conversation about the world today between former UN Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson and Professor Vishakha N. Desai.
